Benoe, I think you are talking about the official factory reset.  That means your battery issue was different from us, caused by some bad apps. Please reply with the steps youve taken if I'm wrong.

 

Sudden battery outage from 40%, BT or Wifi unable to turn on, and extreme battery drain even from factory reset are issues on this phone.  These cannot be affected by which apps you install.

No. I'm talking about rewriting the full internal image of the phone. I don't know if i'm allowed to share the method here, but surely you can find the details on the net. It can be risky though, and will not fix hw issues.
It would be better if you could ask an official service center to do it for you.

Btw. my original problem was that I couldn't have more than 2hrs of SoT a day. Now I can reach 4. I'm using the same set of apps like before.

So far the only method I found slightly effective was to charge your phone for like 10+ hrs ... For some reason the battery percentage our phone is showing is completely irrelevant to the actual battery percentage...by charging the phone for 10+ hrs will give a somewhat battery life provided no mobile data or WiFi connection and very very less SOT..

I assume that it was done using Rsd lite - Motorola tool for phone flashing and recovery. This could be not officially supported, but will not void warranty as far as I remember.

The worst part is that the  trade in/ Resale value for this phone is spectacularly terrible. It's only been one year and some change and Verizon told me it's worth $115. Seriously, you would think the Droid model which is a Verizon exclusive would hold it's value on its exclusive carrier. That's when I knew this was one of the worst purchases of my life. Not only can I barely use the phone but I can barely use it to get another device that doesn't have these issues and had better support. Honestly, I don't want a replacement device that one help one bit.  They should send us free battery mod.  That's the only fix that sounds promising.
